Manchester United have confirmed that midfielder Ander Herrera is to leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the season.
The Spain international has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain. But in a video posted to the club’s official Twitter account on Saturday morning, Herrera admitted that his time at Old Trafford is drawing to a close.
“There is red in my heart,” he said to the backdrop of him walking through the streets of Manchester.
“I knew it from the first time I played here and in the moment that I started to wear it.
“A club with thousands of fans that respect and remember all the players who give everything.
“I felt special when I heard my name chanted. I felt proud when the fans decided I was part of this incredible history.
“Every time I represented this club, in every game, in wins and losses, even when I couldn’t help from the grass, I understood what this club means.
“I am going to remember each of the almost 200 matches that I have played with this jersey because playing for the greatest club in England has been a true honour.
“Thanks for these five amazing years.”
